“A stunning national trust property where they filmed the Christmas special of Downtown Abbey. The cafe is good and if you can get a seat in the walled garden to enjoy your coffee/ food. My parents love the 50's style kitchen and the kids love playing with all the 'weird' gadgets. The gardens are stunning and there are loads of great little buildings to sit in a take in the vistas.”
